Congressman Peter Roskam recently attended a St. Charles Rotary Club meeting. He gave an update on his work as the U.S. Representative for Illinois's 6th Congressional District.
Each week, an invited speaker shares about his or her vocation, service to the local community, international community, community service opportunities, or other needs and opportunities.
The club welcomes business leaders, community leaders, and residents with a desire to serve the community. The club meets at noon Thursdays at The Office restaurant, 201 E. Main St. in downtown St. Charles.
The St. Charles Rotary Club is a mixed group of 50 local business men and women, community leaders, and retirees. Club members embody the Rotary slogan, "Service Above Self," in their daily life. For example, this club has assisted in the building of a library and school in a rural area of Guatemala; sent emergency aid to Haiti; financially supported local nonprofits; and contributed funds to Rotary International's goal of worldwide eradication of polio.
In addition, the club has provided more than $64,000 in local scholarships over the past 6 years. Rotary members are business and professional leaders who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
